YOUNG demonstrators surrounded the Treasury yesterday in a fierce rejection of the government’s austerity measures.

Youth Fight for Jobs (YFFJ) protesters congregated on Horse Guards Road, just a stone’s throw from Downing Street, to voice anger at “all measures of austerity.”

YFFJ spokesman Ian Pattison said: “As young people, our future is being sold off to line the pockets of the rich.”

Young jobseekers face widespread zero-hours contracts, low pay and compulsory “slave labour” workfare enforced by jobcentres.

YFFJ is calling for a £10 minimum hourly wage, a proposal that “unites all working-class people,” Mr Pattison told the Star.

The group plans a month of action in the run-up to nationwide protests on July 8, which will coincide with George Osborne’s emergency budget.
